It Must Be Faith
Ultimately everything that is important, what is eternal, the answer even for everything in this age, comes by faith. It must be faith. One, our abilities are flawed, our sight is muddled. We cannot count on us, are not going to see it right. Two, the forensics have been trampled. We do not enter a clean crime scene. Whatever it is we are looking at has been affected by the harmful effects of the curse. We can’t trust our sight nor what we see. We can trust God’s Word, and we can believe by means of the Word of God, because that is a gift of God. When James says we are begotten by the Word of Truth (James 1:18), he ties that into God’s unchangeable nature, the lack of variation of God. God is outside of the box. There is no shadow of turning with Him. He is not effected or affected. That’s why every good and perfect gift comes from above. It can’t originate here. This scene has been spoiled. It has to come from the outside, which is why we have to live by faith.
